report. in syria at this moment, the historic city of kobani is about to fall in the hands of isis officials. they also admonish that it's not a priority for the u.s.-led coalition. joining that coalition is canada. the canadian approved air against isis in iraq, though not in syria. they deployed six f-18 fighter jets. steven harper praised the vote saying we do not take the step lightly.threat posed by isil is real. if left unchecked, the situation mr. grow and grow quickly. of course this says nothing for the people of kobani under siege. we'll have more with arwa damon in about ten minutes. this morning, london on
edge. scotland yard arresting four men on tuesday on suspicion of planning an act of terrorism. officials are offering no details or specifics on what the four all in their 20s allegedly were planning. mike, do officials believe there's a link here to islamic terror groups like isis? >> certainly, that seemed the case. this is related to islamic terrorism. they say these four men are suspected of either preparing or instigating acts of terrorism. that's why they were arrested. they've been held for now over 24 hours. the question still continues. the police won't give us further information about what these men may have done. however, what the police chief here has said is that their arrest has links going back to iraq and syria. and the implication there that could be isis. because it is iraq and syria. uk right now as an estimated 500
young men who have gone to join isis. and like-minded radical groups in iraq and syria. and the concern is that some of them will come back. it's not clear at the moment if any of these men have been to syria. what the connections may be to isis. but the indications we're being given, a plot thwarted in its early stages, and the links to iraq and syria at this moment, the indications do point towards an isis connection, christine. >> you know, nick, just like the u.s., the fbi asking for help to identify this hooded masked man who speaks perfect arabic and perfect north american english, in the uk you have concerns about the homegrown young men who have passports and financial resources to be able to join the fight. this is a tough call, tough job
for both of these governments. >> it is, we're certainly going to hear more from the british government about what they can do to take passports away from people who have been to syria and iraq to fight to join radical groups and coming back to britain. a lot more is hoped to be done in legal terms to make it much harder for them just to leave and come back. up until now, some of the young men have gone and come back saying we've just gone to syria for humanitarian reasons to help out with aid and such like. where the security services believe that may not be the case. they may in fact have actually been fighting. so what can the governments do about it? well, one of those things is to control those people more efficiently when they come back, and that would include taking their passports, as well as monitoring the security services once they're back in the country, christine. >> new arrests tuesday. thank you so much, nic robertson in london for that. we'll turn to the latest on the ebola situation.
the head of the centers for disease control sounding confident that the u.s. can prevent an outbreak on u.s. soil. thomas frieden declared we will stop ebola in its tracks. >> there are real signs of progress, not only in dallas, but also around the world. we know how to stop ebola. >> this morning, thomas eric duncan is battling ebola, fighting for his life in a dallas hospital. and we're finding out more this morning about his prognosis. let's check in with senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen. >> john and christine, thomas eric duncan is still in critical condition here at texas presbyterian hospital. we have more details about how he's doing. he's on kid nah dialysis. he's also on a ventilator to help him breathe. and he's as under medical sedation which means his family can't speak with him. in a press conference on tuesday, his family did say there are signs of optimism. for example, his blood pressure is back up. that's a good thing.
dangerously blood pressure say problem for ebola patients. also they said his liver function is looking better and that his temperature has returned to normal. now, we think about this disease spreading within the city of dallas there's really good news. so far health shorts have been following duncan's 48 contacts. 48 people he came into contact with while he was contagious. and so far, none of them are sick. today is day ten. it's been about ten days since any of them have had contact with duncan. and usually on average, people tend to get sick about ten days after they come in contact with an infected person. still, authorities will follow these people and monitor them for 21 days just to be sure. john and christine. >> elizabeth, thank you for that. an nbc cameraman who contracted ebola in liberia is in reasonably stable condition in a nebraska hospital. ashoka mukpo is being treated.
he said he's scared. he's relieved to be back home. he believes to be infected while spray washing a vehicle where someone had died with ebola. his parents deputy see him with a video. >> he actually looks quite good. he's been nauseated and having some of those symptoms. he actually looks a lot better than i expected and that was a really hard thing to see. >> doctors are questioning him and actually much harder to tell whether he'll recover. in spain, health officials there might be dealing with a second case of ebola. a second nurse's assistant is showing symptoms she was on the same team that treated two ebola patients in madrid last month. and now we're learning that a dog belonging to the first nurse's assistant is being put down. spanish authorities are getting a court order to euthanize that
animal fearing he might spread the virus. four u.s. aid organizations found they received less than $20 million in donations combined. bill and melinda gates are doing their part. their fougs just announced it$5 ebola. an air tanker dropping fire retardant dog park are dropping on the fire. an early start on "your money," asian and european markets lower. weak out of china. major selloff yesterday. u.s. stocks in months of worries
of stocks in europe. the dow lost 270 points. the s&p 500, futures are slightly higher, so maybe a bounceback today. we'll have to see if it holds. one bright spot in the u.s. economy. job openings, at the highest level in 13 years. ironic, right, job openings the highest in 14 years. and the dow is down. two unemployed workers for every available job. >> look at that chart. >> you know me, i love that chart. analysts say it's a sign we should expect more declines unemployment. the unemployment rate fell below 6% since 2008. i've been looking at pretty ugly charts for the last years. two for every job opening, it's like i have to beat you out easy. >> i don't know why you have to go there. let's take an early look with
our weather with chad myers. >> wet weather in the northeast. it will go away later this afternoon. showers will pop up could see airport delays across the northeast due to that. other than that, we're in pretty good shape, there maybe wind delays, chicago, minneapolis, down to d.c. 75, though, in d.c. for tomorrow, scattered storms redevelop in the plains as the next system tries to move to the northeast for the weekend, nothing really in the gulf of mexico, although the tropics are getting a little more active than they've been. now, that's not saying much. at least there are a couple storms that we're watching, we certainly don't want them for the u.s. but the active season could be picking up. 74 for d.c. 84 in atlanta, 88 in memphis. a pleasant 74 in l.a. enjoy your day, guys. >> pleasant, that's good. all right. very pleasant right now for the st. louis cardinals and the san francisco giants, they are on to
the national league championship series. the cards eliminating the dodgers in four games on that swing. matt adams, his three run homer off of clayton kershaw who was shockingly ineffective in the playoffs. there's clayton kershaw looking very sad. >> meanwhile, the san francisco giants beating the nationals also in four games. game one of the alcs will be saturday in st. louis. these teams are good. and they've been good for a while. this is the fourth straight year that the cardinals are playing for the pennant. the giants in the championship series for the first time in three seasons in that was a scandal, yasiel puig, you may have heard of him, the best player in the dodgers, he didn't start for the dodgers, because the manager clearly wasn't thinking correctly. and he didn't even hit, he was used as a pinch runner in the
ninth inning. it was crazy. and the dodgers lost. >> you better call john for unsolicited morning after advice. the fight for kobani continues this morning as officials acknowledge its fall maybe imminent. we're live from the scene of that battle. new concerns this morning about chemical weapons in syria, as authorities now say there are four additional facility, they failed to disclose. why inspectors questioning even more. it's coming up on "early start." shopping for my daughters isn't like it use to be.
do these shoes say "mathlete" to you? ha! where do you put the books?! these are still cool, right? number 15 of my 20, desperately trying to keep my girls from growing up too fast. the amex everyday credit card, with no annual fee. make 20 or more purchases in a monthly billing period and earn 20% more rewards. is this nut-free? it's membership that rewards you for the things you already buy, every day. what's your 20? overnight, coalition aircraft with air strikes against isis fighters trying to take the city of kobani. that's on syria's border with turkey. a cnn crew captured footage of this bombing mission. coalition efforts are looking increasingly futile, telling
several on tuesday that kobani will fall and will fall soon. but those same officials say kobani is not a u.s. priority. this despite pleas by the u.s. special envoy for syria by the international community to step in and help the fighters, kurdish fighters who are there try and save that city. standing by live on the border, cnn's arwa damon. arwa, what's the latest? >> reporter: well, that rhetoric coming out from the u.s., especially that declaration that kobani is not a priority was certainly not working in america's favor when it comes towards sentiment towards the united states. that being said, though, a senior official in kobani that we spoke to said the air strikes, the handful of air trikes have helped them. that coming with kurdish forces, sheer determination has meant to this official that they managed to push the isis fighters back ever so slightly along some of the streets that they had
originally taken when they managed to break through kobani. we're hearing aircraft overhead, john. that being said, though, the kurdish fighters do need additional support. they want it from the coalition. they fail to understand why why it is they saw air strikes in iraq when isis was barreling down on key cities here and they're not seeing the same response when it comes to saving kobani. the u.s. making it clear that saving kobani not a priority. you can imagine what it's like for the population who has suffered at the hands of isis. also turkey, the kurds want to see turkey to allow a cor allow them to get additional weaponry that would allow them to deal a dead lear blow to isis. they will not be arming the kurds, they say until the kurds
officially join the free army. ruling out action to save kobani but the government did come out and say they would be willing to become part of a broader military mission to go after the regime. that is not something that the coalition continues to take on. the situation is continually complicated. >> complicated and frustrating no doubt, as the turks stand by and watch and do nothing. arwa damon on the border, thanks so much. there are new concerns about chemical weapons in syria. according to the u.n., syria has revealed four previously undisclosed research facilities. one is for production. 1300 tons of declared chemical weapons have been removed from syria. now international inspectors focusing on the destruction of syria's wednesday facilities. a 29-year-old newlywed has

hear someone talk about it in those terms. almost matter of factually. stunning allegations against "seventh heaven" actor stevens collins who being investigated for child molestation. collins confessed to a therapy session that his wife secretly recorded. police in new york say they're aware of the allegations but say collins cannot face charges because of the statute of limitations. minnesota vikings star adrian peterson will be arraigned in a texas courtroom. he's expected to plead not guilty to a felony charge of child abuse. peterson was indicted last month for allegedly using a switch, a small tree branch, for disciplining his small son, leaving bruises and scratches. a routine stop for a seat belt violation turned violent in
illinois. police smashed through a passenger seat window and used a stun gun on a man as a 14-year-old in the backseat recorded all. >> oh! >> this unfolded last month in hammond. that's about 30 miles southeast of chicago. >> now claiming excessive force and battery. before the window was smashed. he can be heard asking police why they pulled a gun on him asking why they did have i.d. he was ticketed for not paying insurance -- i mean, whatever the reasons he were, it's scary to see. that's a frightening video. 27 minutes past the hour, the fbi is asking you to help identify a isis militant, this man, they say could be an american. it has been a week since the
acknowledge that isis could take this city really any minute. we'll take you right to the border for the latest. a possible second case of ebola discovered in spain. hospital workers on high alert after an assistant nurse is now showing symptoms of the deadly virus. we'll take you live to madrid. i'm christine romans. >> and i'm john berman. great to see you, 32 minutes past the hour. and this morning, the fbi wants your help in the fight against isis, posting a video on its website, in hopes someone knows this man and perhaps can identify, he speaks perfect arabic and perfect english with an accent that seems north american. listen for yourself. >> we're here in the 17th military base just outside the city of iraq ka, and we're here with the soldiers of al assad. >> washington correspondent joe johns following the story for
us. he has more on the hunt for this apparently american isis fighter. >> john and christine, this video appears to show a jihadi speaking isis propaganda speaking very good english with a northern american accent alternating speaking arabic. delivering an on camera tirade before he and other fighters appear to shoot a group of syrians dead. the syrians apparently have been forced to dig then own graves. the man speaking has a mask over his face which makes him irrecognizable. and authorities have been using advanced technology. they are not certain if he's american or canadian. the fbi posted portions of the video on its website asking the web for help in identifying him. they're saying they're hoping someone might recognize this individual and provide them a piece of information that helps them figure out who he is. the fbi says this is part of a broader outreach to help get the government identify people who are traveling overseas to fight
terror groups. and it goes without saying they are perhaps even more interested in learning the identities of american isis fighters who might be returning home. john and christine. >> really remarkable to hear that accent. in syria, the strategic city of kobani is about to fall in the hands of isis fighters. this according to several u.s. officials. they also acknowledge saving kobani not a priority for the u.s.-led coalition. joining that coalition this morning is canada, the canadian parliament approving air migtss in iraq, though not in syria. deploying six f-16 fighter jets. prurm stephen harper praised the vote, we do not take the threat lightly. the threat pof by isis is real. if left unchecked, this condition will grow and grow quickly. cnn's arwa damon will have much more on that situation in kobani

to join like isis. that's in the bag ground here. why were these young men arrested. one was tasered during his arrest. police were involved also. it underscores just how serious the nature of what these men may have been planning was. and from what we understand, essentially what the police are saying as well, that a terror plot was thwarted here, perhaps in its early stages, john. >> nic, we'll fiend out more in the coming days. our thanks to you for that report. we turn now to the latest on the ebola crisis. the head for the centers for disease control sounding confident the u.s. could prevent an outbreak on u.s. soil. thomas frieden declaring we will stop ebola in its tracks. >> there are real signs of progress, not only in dallas, but also around the world. we know how to stop ebola. >> mean tieshlgs an ebola-stricken liberia man fighting for his life this morning in a dallas hospital. and we're finding out more about his prognosis.

any of them have had contact with duncan. and usually on average, people tend to get sick about ten days after they come in contact with an infected person. but still authorities will follow these people and monitor them for 21 days just to be sure. john and christine. >> our thanks to elizabeth cohen. an nbc cameraman who contracted ebola in liberia is in reasonably stable condition in a nebraska hospital this morning. ashoka mukpo is being treated with an experimental drug. he says he's scared, relieved to be back home and believes he was infected while spray-washing a vehicle where someone had died from ebola. his parents deputy see and speak to him on tuesday using a video hookup. >> he actually looks quite good, i know he's been nauseated and having some of those symptoms but he actually looks a lot better than i expected and that was a really hard thing to see. >> doctors are still cautiously

crushed the dodgers last night. with that, matt adams' three-run home run, off of who exactly? clayton kershaw. probably the national league mvp who just had one of the best years ever as a pitcher. but he had a rough playoffs. you can see by the look right there. the cardinals beat the dodgers 3-2, they win in four games. meanwhile, the giants over the washington nationals, not showing nat atud last night. game one of alcs will be saturday in st. louis. both of these teams know a little bit about winning. this is the fourth straight year that the cardinals are playing for the pennant. the giants in a championship series for the third time. and yasiel puig, the best player on the dodgers did not start last night and did not get in the game as a batter at all. used as a pinch runner in the ninth. what were you thinking don

authorities are also seeing a court order to put down a dog belonging to the first nursing assistant. they fear the dog might spread the virus. what are officials in spain doing to deal with this outbreak and with public fear? >> hi, christine, well, the five key people in this ebola crisis here in spain are in this hospital behind me, that includes the confirmed case, that's the nurse's assistant and four under suspicion. that includes two other health care workers. one has tested negative. she's due to get out in the coming hour. also in there are the husband of the nursing assistant, the woman who has the ebola virus. and a man who came back to spain from africa. outside of the hospital, they're monitoring about 50 other people who had contact with the nursing assistant. in spanish parliament, we just heard from the prime for the first time, he urged people to
stay calm. he said the government is going to try to find out what happened and will be fully transparent. critics say the government has not been transparent and that's why there's been critics and outcry, christine. >> we do know more about how ebola was contracted there? was it taking care of two patients and the protocols were missed? do they know how they contracted the virus? >> the government hasn't said, but media reports citing unnamed sources are saying that it's possible that this nurse's assistant took off one of the layers of protective clothing. the unions are saying that these nurse's assistants were not really fully trained on what to do. clearly, they were taking care of two spanish missionaries who came back from africa with the ebola virus. both died here. and she was part of that team, taking care of them. and shortly after their deaths, she got it. >> that must be terrifying, hope
all is well at that hospital behind new madrid. thank you. 47 minutes after the hour. this among, where is kim jong-un? north korea's leader has not been seen publicly. officials say kim is suffering from discomfort. my back hurts, does that count? there's speculation about whether he is still in control, with a surprise visit to south korea without kim. >> it really say mystery, and it's such a closed society. we watch all of these pictures and all of these staged, managed events with power happening in the country. suffering from discomfort. what could that mean? >> it means anything. by the way, it's such a close society that it's only natural you that get the conspiracy theories and the only reason to wonder. a 29-year-old newlywed has
